Pluck wins the Summer Stakes; New Normal wins the Natalma

The Todd Pletcher trained Pluck unleashed a big move coming off the turn to take command of the Summer Stakes at the top of the stretch en route to a one length victory over Rockin Heat and Stormy Rush. (Chart)  Pluck paid $7.00, $4.00, and $2.90.

In the Natalma Stakes for juvenile fillies, New Normal set moderate fractions on the front end en route to a wire-to-wire score at 7/1.  (Chart)  Odds-on favorite More Than Real made a spirited charge in the lane but wasn't able to overtake the front-running winner.  New Normal paid $15.80, $5.70, and $3.70.

Both Pluck and New Normal are now guaranteed starting spots in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf and the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Filly Turf, respectively.
